I'm in Unstructured Frame and doubt I'll be moving to structured any 
time soon. 

I'll contemplate a different template for the quckstarts. It may be the 
best solution in spite of the still unconventional outline structure.  
(My 3rd grade language arts teacher wouldn't approve of a level 2 
Heading w/ only 1 level 3 child! ;-p )

thanks!
